Host Jane Lindholm and producer Melody Bodette take questions from kids and find interesting people to answer them. This hour-long special is a collection of some of our favorite episodes from the past year. Linguist Jon McWhorter answers "who invented words?"

We also hear the sounds barred owls and find lobsters under rocks with Zach Whitner of the Gulf of Maine Research Institute. Chris Kimball answers "why do we like to eat certain foods?" and the Monell Institute explains how we taste food. We learn about something kids might not like to taste, coffee, with 44 North Coffee.
